We Recommend: Serial Podcast

Remember a time before television, when the evening's entertainment was provided in the form of listening to weekly radio shows after dinner? Ok, we don't either, but we like to pretend when we're listening to Serial, the podcast from the creators of This American Life.

Serial is being released in 40 minute installments each week, and currently there are 9 episodes (out of a scheduled 12, although because the show is still being written, there is a possibility of more). The show investigates the 1999 murder of Baltimore high school student Hae Min Lee and the subsequent conviction and of her ex boyfriend Adnan Syed. We've become hooked, and can't wait to hear what the host, Sarah Koenig uncovers next. The soundtrack and method of delivery are riveting, and while it may turn out that nothing can conclusively be determined about the case, we love following along as new points come to light.

Serial can be listened to on the web, or downloaded to your phone. They also post additional content to their blog. If you haven't already started listening, we highly recommend. It's guaranteed to make your Thanksgiving travel fly by.
